International Log Builders Association 40th Year

2013 ILBA Conference

Prescott Resort in Arizona Our 40th Annual Conference - April 4 to 7, 2013
Prescott Resort & Conference Center
Prescott, Arizona

In 1974, around Thanksgiving, Mary and Allan Mackie, Vic Janzen, Bernie Legault, Fergus O’Connor, Ed Campbell, and Art Long decided to form an association on for log home builders. The CLBA was born, and that 1974 gathering was our 1st meeting.

That means that in 2013 we will have our 40th annual conference.

This time we will meet at the Prescott Resort in Arizona - a venue that we all really liked a few years ago. Home to “red rock” granite country. Petroglyphs. Golf. The famous Palace Saloon, on Prescott’s Whiskey Row, is where Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday were regulars in the 1870’s. These frontier lawmen called The Palace their “local watering hole” When there was a fire, a hundred years ago, the patrons carried the bar out into the street to save it. The Palace is still a popular. In fact, a few log builders belliedup to the Palace bar last time the ILBA met in Arizona. We quenched our powerful thirsts (with local craft-beer, not rockgut), and then settled into a booth for a round of grilled, thick steaks. We kept our eyes on the door, of course. It’s the Wild West bring it on!

The ILBA has scored some excellent room rates for the conference, and with bargain flights to, and cheap rental cars in, Las Vegas or Phoenix, this will be an affordable conference. So, Log Fitters, pack your bags for Arizona, and don’t leave your families behind. With the Grand Canyon’s South Rim only a short drive away it’s both a family vacation and a business write-off.

This will be a trip, and a conference, to remember!
